Manchester-based Dorothy has created a striking poster to promote Tate Liverpool‘s current exhibition, Picasso: Peace and Freedom, which runs until August 30…

The exhibition is the first to focus on the post-war period of the famous artist’s work in depth – a period in which Picasso was a member of the French Communist Party.

The poster features a bespoke font designed specially for the exhibition – inspired, Dorothy tells us, “by the posters designed and distributed by striking workers and students in the Paris uprising of May ’68.” The font, entitled Picasso ’68 is being used across all exhibition branding, advertising and a range of merchandise including the poster shown above – which has been produced as a limited edition screenprint which is for sale exclusively in the Tate shop.
